But...but...but...you're supposed to be furious about it!

We just think it's funny. Of course, it was doubly funny when a certain Edmonton fan posted on the main board about how they didn't mind the Wild until we started calling the Oilers "Eddy."

Don't really care about the pic as "trolling" here...only trolling if it's annoying. I don't think Minny fans get worked up that easily
im glad, its all in fun anyway.

That should make a better fourth line, but I want Wellman to get a shot in the top 6.

I am surprised that the shortened version annoys you guys so much. I never gave it much thought. It's just shorter. Like calling Toronto TO, or Vancouver Van or Tampa Bay TB or Edmonton e-town.

I can tell you for sure that there is no negative sentiment behind it when HFOil calls you guys Minny. And if you want to call us Eddy feel free. Doesn't matter at all to me.

If the oilers lose and you post that on our boards I am giving you an infraction. Fair warning.

Hmm I guess. I never thought of it as a Disney reference. I just thought it was shorter to type. Plus I suck at spelling Minnesota.

The only shortened names I approve of is...

Philly (because Will Smith said it was ok)
Chi-town (because it's badass)

Does anybody think the good people of Winnipeg would be cool with calling them Winny? I don't.

Edmonton fans give more ****s about Wild fans getting trolled than Wild fans do.

I'm still not even sure if we actually exist. The thought that we're all a figment of Eddy fans' imaginations has crossed my mind before.

Heater is far overdue for a multi-goal game or just a goal period! Would love to see that top line get a couple. Not sure if anyone's noticed but Cullen's been pretty quiet the last few games. Would like to see him get a couple points tonight as well.

In any case it's nap time right now so I'm well rested to watch tonight's game. Assuming I get my big paper done before it starts.

actually have seen plenty of people use Winni (pronouced the same) to refer to winnipeg. same deal with minnesota, shorten it to minne but they make the long y sound at the end of that abbreviation so they just change the spelling.

There is a logic behind it.

That's disgusting, and I for one, will not stand by people disrespecting the Peg so.

Except when we play against winny.

Good. And I think he stays down there until that happens and gets a shot at going elsewhere this offseason.

Also, don't taunt the mods

Double also, if the trolling or stupidity gets out of hand, we will be forced to use extreme...force.

Some Oiler fans give us a bad name and like to troll other team's GDTs. I was just trying to nip it in the bud before you got flooded.

And a friendly request, if any Oiler fans do troll you guys tonight please report the posts.

Best of luck this season(just not tonight). If we can't lead the division I'd prefer to see you guys there rather than Col, Cal or Van.

We're aren't freaking mice, it's pine trees, and bears, and manly ****, and stars, and something else in the logo.

What if we called Tampa Bay Tampy, Calgary Cally, Vancouver Vanny, Ottawa Otty, Toronto Toronny,

The abbreviated version just sounds stupid.
That other thing is the Mighty Mississippi River.

And we already called Tampy that. Just go check out our GDT from that game. We made good use of a Tampy to stop our bleeding

It pains me to say the same because I'm not a huge fan of Eddy, but Nugent-Hopkins and Hall are just a treat to watch, I just don't like seeing them 6 times a year. Good luck to you guys as well, it's nice to see some different people in the playoff spots this year for sure. I wouldn't mind having a playoff series against you guys, it would be pretty fun and very very intense (aren't they all?). Good luck.
